Small Business Profile: Beauty Mark

Beauty Mark is one of Vancouver’s longstanding beauty boutiques that has offered highly coveted brands and products north of the border. In the last few years, they’ve gone from a cozy spot in the heart of Yaletown over to a larger space on Pacific Boulevard, widening their goodies to include specialty beauty services such as as manicures and blow outs in addition to clothing. They are a go-to spot for gifts, and beauty staples.  We chatted with new owners Tayler and Kendra who were long time employees of the store, who have now bought the boutique from the previous owner.

Be sure to visit the ladies in store for one-on-one tips on the best products in season!

Tayler Rogers & Kendra Lovick, Owners

 

CK: How long have you been with Beauty Mark and what made you want to take over the store?

We have both been with BeautyMark for over 6 years. It’s always been a dream of ours to open up a store of some sorts together, so it only seemed natural when the opportunity came up for us to jump at the chance.

CK: How has the transition been from long-time employees to owners?

The transition has been pretty seamless. Marc’s (past owner) always let us be very involved with the running of the store and has always acted as kind of a mentor, so we were very prepared for taking over.

CK: What changes can we expect from Beauty Mark with the new ownership?

We’ve already made some big changes to the store – enlarging the fashion area was our first big change on the list. We also really want to make it a priority to keep the store properly stocked, which has been an issue in the past. Other than that we are just trying to keep BeautyMark as great as it’s always been. We’ve always got new ideas on the go, you’ll just have to stay tuned.

CK: What will stay the same at Beauty Mark?

BeautyMark will always be that fun spot you can come and find the latest and greatest beauty items in the city. Carrying local Canadian brands has always been something that makes BeautyMark special, so it’s a huge priority to us to keep that concept and even expand on it. We’re always on the hunt for new, exciting things.

CK:  Top spring/summer trend for beauty?

CK: Top spring/summer trend or product for style?

Product trends are anything to help you create that effortless, ready for anything look. Use ‘Bianco Breeze’ by Principessa for a quick volume boost, this hair powder not only eliminates excess oil but also works as a great volumizer. Mario Badescu’s ‘Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs & Rose Water’ is a great way to freshen up after a day at the beach en route to the patio for drinks.
